RIP Guru

DJ Premier's blog reports that Guru has passed away from a long battle with cancer. This is a tremendous loss as Guru was a strong strong MC and presence in the culture. He did his share of storytelling, battle ryhmes, party tracks, and brought a lot of MC's through. He was bold in his early excursions into Jazz and Hip Hop, and complemented one of the greatest producers in all of Hip Hop. Strong work from a strong MC

PS... Thanks Premier for sharing this on your blog. It seems there was some shady shit going on... and it shows that if there is a document that smears you, that you have the maturity to post. Life is complicated and you are to make the best of what you got... that’s what Hip Hop taught me and you are being the true teacher right now.
